The story of Joe Devlin and the story of nationalism in the North of Ireland were closely interwoven for forty years. Even during the crucial 1919-22 period, when Devlin had very little influence or power and when the Northern IRA were active and entirely outside his orbit, this continued to be the case, for he remained in political terms the leading Northern representative. This chapter begins with a brief discussion of Devlin's personal life and qualities, and concludes with an assessment of his political career in the context of ‘the Belfast city question’.
